A Christmas Meme


I wasn’t actually tagged for this, but Inland Empire Girl posted it on her blog so I’m doing the same. And of course, feel free to post it on your blog if you like.


1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? With my hands becoming more and more stiff from arthritis (and just general old age), bags are much more convenient.

2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial — save a tree and all that, plus who can afford the prices of trees?

3. When do you put up the tree? It’s not up yet – but hopefully before Dec 25th!! It’s usually the first week in December but we’re afraid the GrandDolly will get it in her head to climb it so we’ve kind of put it off.

4. When do you take the tree down? Left to my own devices, it would come down the day after Christmas — but usually it’s New Year’s Day or so.

5. Do you like eggnog? I do like it, just not that much

6. Favorite gift received as a child? The one that sticks in my head the most was a red plaid jumper that my Aunt Joyce gave me when I was about 8 years old. I felt very Scottish when I wore it.

7. Do you have a nativity scene? No — but I will put it on my to do list.

8. Hardest person to buy for? Sweet Baboo — he has everything he needs, including me. This year we decided not to buy for each other so that makes it much easier.

9.Easiest person to buy for? Sweet Son In Law

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Nothing really comes to mind.

11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail — I wish I could be organized enough to send them to that Post Office that will cancel them with the North Pole cancellation stamp.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually November

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No, and I have some land in Florida that I’d like to talk to you about……..

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Ham — we always have turkey for Thanksgiving. And pumpkin and apple pie.

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Clear lights.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Little Drummer Boy and anything by Manheim Steamroller

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay home

19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? I can

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel that I made years ago

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? The constant Christmas music.

23. What I love most about Christmas? I love all the usual stuff, but I really enjoy riding around Christmas Eve looking at everybody’s lights and displays.
